Sweet, Rounded, Comforting Shanhugang Garden, Fujian, China
A deeply refreshing, sweet and honeyed white tea. The silvery buds and delicate young leaves produce an enchanting infusion with notes of hay meadow, fruity melon and apple blossom freshness.

White Peony

白牡丹白茶

White Peony is a literal translation of this tea's Chinese name, Bai Mu Dan. It is named after the tea plant's small, white flowers, whose natural scent is reminiscent of China's beloved peonies. Grown in Shanhugang Garden, in the cool misty mountains of Fujian province, this style of white tea pairs sweet, silver-haired buds with additional young leaves for full complexity and a fresh taste. The leaves, which have simply been withered and sun-dried, produce an infusion with a beautifully rounded texture and a comforting, pure flavour.

    A very nice flora tea

    I really like this tea as an everyday, all day favourite. It is light but very floral. My favourite everyday white tea. I would rate it above the silver needle.

    I first bought green tea but have tried this one to use for breakfast. Not too strong or overpowering. An ideal breakfast tea

    Clean and sweet

    A beautiful quaffable white tea with the definitive flavour of sweet hay. Clean but calming - a nice alternative to Chamomile and without the thick texture.Marked as 4* as personally I prefer a little kick, but what a pleasant drink!Best taken in the afternoon or early evening.

    Lovely taste at a good price!

    This tea turns out a lovely golden colour with a nice taste to match. It has a great balance to it - it has a deeper flavour than a silver needle, but still retains the lovely essence of a white tea. A great way to relax in the afternoon, and I'm especially impressed with it because of the economical price!
